The World Commodity Exporters Database is a collection of key macro-fiscal indicators covering 52 countries that are exporters of oil, gas, and metals (such as copper, gold, iron, and silver), where these commodities represent a large share of exports (20 percent or more of total exports) or fiscal revenues. The dataset was compiled from the following sources: International Financial Statistics (IFS), Balance of Payments Statistics, Direction of Trade Statistics, World Economic Outlook, and FAD’s fiscal rules. Data for all variables of interest are collected on an annual basis from 1970 to 2014, where available.
